How to prevent vaginal yeast infection?

Posted by nutritionist 27/05/2016 0 Comment(s) women's care,

Vaginal yeast infection occurs when there is an overgrowth of the fungus, candida albicans. Women who are diabetic, pregnant, under a lot of stress or have been taking antibiotics, corticosteroids and contraceptive pills, are more susceptible to vaginal yeast infections. Below are the 5 tips to prevent vaginal yeast infection.

 

• Take probiotics. Probiotics help restore the balance of the bacteria living in the female genital tract and inhibit the growth of yeast in women with recurrent infections.

 

• Practise good personal hygiene: It is important to wipe the anus from front to back to prevent bacteria in the anus from travelling to the vagina. • Wear cotton underwear. Candida thrives best in a damp and warm environment. Cotton wear absorbs moisture and perspiration better and thus reduces the risk of yeast infection.

 

• Avoid tight-fitting jeans and pants. Stay cool, dry and airy in loose-fitting pants.

 

• Manage stress. Stress can weaken the immune system and trigger an infection.
